It’s Band, Baja, Baraat Time: Don’t Risk the Former Two

Your big fat Indian wedding is approaching, and you’ve checked off almost everything on your list. From food and hotels to dance rehearsals, wedding dresses, family fun (and drama), invitations, an Indian Wedding DJ, and lots of laddus—everything seems to be falling into place.


But what happens when you and your partner step away for those perfect Instagram pictures? How will your guests stay entertained? Or if you arrive late because your makeup artist needed extra time to perfect your look? How will your guests stay entertained then? And when there’s a delay in the buffet, keeping those hangry uncles waiting is not an option. How will your guests stay entertained?


This is why having the perfect Indian wedding DJ is absolutely necessary. Here are some key aspects to consider when choosing the best DJ for your special day.


How to Hire an Indian Wedding DJ

First things first, you need to find a DJ who knows the ins and outs of Indian wedding ceremonies and receptions. A good wedding DJ can truly bring your event to life and ensure that your guests have a fantastic time.

Research is Key

When looking for a DJ, it’s important to conduct thorough research. Look for DJs who specialize in weddings and have experience with Indian ceremonies. Read reviews, check their portfolios, and reach out to them with questions to understand their style and capabilities.

Budget Considerations

The cost of a wedding DJ can vary greatly. In the wedding industry, you often get what you pay for. Higher-end DJs tend to have more experience, use professional-grade equipment, and can provide a superior experience for your guests. However, there are many tiers available, so find an option that fits your budget and vision. Just ensure you cover all bases and avoid any hidden charges.

Pay Attention to Professionalism

Professionalism is a key factor when choosing the right DJ. Consider how quickly they respond to emails and requests, their attire and organization, and their engagement throughout the event. A DJ is one of the main hosts of your wedding and should look and act the part.

Be Observant

A great DJ is observant and knows how to read the room. They should be able to adjust the ambiance from calm during mealtime to energetic on the dance floor. An experienced Indian wedding DJ will know how to meet the crowd’s expectations and keep the energy flowing.

Request Samples

Always ask for samples of the DJ’s work, regardless of their reputation. This could be a live performance, sample playlist, or mixtape to ensure they know how to handle an Indian Wedding. Seeing them perform at a similar event can also give you a good idea of their style and capabilities.


A wedding isn’t a house party. A good Indian wedding DJ should have a wide range of music to cater to different ages and tastes. They should be able to accommodate specific themes or styles of music and understand the importance of a “do and don’t play” list to ensure your preferences are met.

Quality of Equipment

A DJ is only as good as their equipment. High-quality sound systems and lighting can make or break the atmosphere of your event. Ensure that your DJ uses top-tier equipment to deliver pristine sound and captivating visuals, including professional-grade speakers, mixers, and microphones.


Specialized Services

Consider DJs who offer a range of specialized services to enhance your wedding experience:

Dancing on Cloud Effect: Create a magical first dance with a low-lying fog effect.
CO2 Cannons: Add bursts of excitement and energy during key moments.
Monograms: Personalize your venue with custom light projections of your names or initials.

Projector Screen types and Projector Placement: High-lumen projectors provide high-quality images, ideal for displaying slideshows or live video feeds. You also want projector screens designed for rear projection to avoid awkward projector placement near tables and risk guests and service workers potentially obstructing the view of your projection show throughout your wedding or reception.

Dynamic Uplighting:
While an increasing amount of venues now provide uplighting as part of their offerings, those lights are typically static and stay the same throughout the night. Ask your DJ on whether they offer dynamic uplighting controlled via My DMX software and hardware, which offers a much more dynamic experience where lights can be programmed to complement various parts of your event, such as entrances, performances, and open dance floors.

Intelligent Lighting

Look for DJs who use moving head intelligent lights that serve as both ambient pattern lights and spotlights for key moments such as entrances, performances, speeches, cake cutting, first dances, and the open dance floor. These lights create a mesmerizing atmosphere and enhance every moment of your wedding.

Professional MC Services

A seamless event requires a professional MC who understands the nuances of different ceremonies and can correctly pronounce and announce key moments. An experienced MC ensures a smooth flow of events and keeps your guests engaged.


Premium Services

For those looking to elevate their Indian wedding experience, consider DJs who offer premium services designed for Indian weddings such as:

LED Walls: Live video feeds, graphics, and a concert-grade atmosphere.
Video Mapping: Transform your venue with customized projections, transporting your guests to any location or environment.
Lasers: Create a music festival-like atmosphere with professional laser shows.
